    Default Fresh Mown Grass?

    I love the way the yard smells after I mow it. Are there any colognes that smell like this?

    I get that aroma from Carolina Herrera's 212 for Men -- other people don't.

    Try Eau de Campagne by Sisley.

    I get a mown-grass top note in CdG Odeur 71.
    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    Cool Re: Fresh Mown Grass?

    Demeter Grass and L'Artisan Navegar, and if your lawn has lots of amazingly weird flowers and herbs growing in it and your mower is smoking, LV's Yerbamate.

    Agree that "fresh mown grass" describes Sisley's Eau de Champagne exactly.

    Some other freshly cut green fragrances are: Green by Gendarme = green vegetable garden, Chanel, Bel Respiro = cut grass & flowers, and Mugler Cologne = cut green saplings.

    Like them all.

    Trophee Lancome and Miracle L'Aquatonic (also Lancome) for sure!!!

    Trophee is the freshly mown grass at a country club, while L'Aquatonic is the dandelion-covered backyard.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Miracle L'Aquatonic is a good call!

    Givenchy Green Energy.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Some good recommendations already. I add:

    Acqua Allegoria Herba Fresca by Guerlain (grass, with mint...my fav)
    Bowling Green by Geoffrey Beene (grass and sparkling lemon notes...and extremely affordable)

    Navegar, Mugler Cologne, Gendarme Green are ones I love that make me feel the way you are describing about fresh cut lawn.

    Davidoff GoodLife... cheap (money-wise) and grassy... more like eating a key lime pie on a freshly-cut lawn.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate- Its not grass but has a hay componant and is worth a try. Herbal, sweet and somewhat grassy.

    I haven't smelled a more pronounced "grass note" than in 212 Men or Comme des Garcons Odeur 71 though they don't exactly smell like grass alone.

    Now if you want the smell of grass with the lawnmower thrown in there too, Fahrenheit by Dior.

    I recommended Navegar earlier. Am I the only one that thinks this smells like the underside of a lawnmower?

    Who ever said it... Fahrenheit. When I wear it, reminds me of mowing yards when I was12 with honeysuckle bushes nearby.

    That touch of grass and motor oil.

    Think I'll wear it tomorrow.

    Versace's The Dreamer makes ample use of the new mown hay note,
    but I just can't handle this scent.

    Yes it did...and I miss it terribly.

    And BTW, Ava Luxe's Green Grass of Summer is horrible. She marketed it as an alternative to the discontinued Gap Grass and it misses the mark.
